NSW All Schools Athletics

During the Term 3 holidays, New South Wales Athletics held their All Schools Athletics Championships at Sydney Olympic Park. The College is thrilled to share the following results from our students that participated:

Chase Grant:

  • 3rd in the 400m 16B with a new PB of 49.09s – for context the amazing Cathy Freeman won gold in the 400m at the 2000 Olympics with a time of 49.11. Earlier this year Chase broke the Diocesan record in the 400m with 51.10s, quite an improvement!
  • 3rd in the 200m 16B with a new PB of 21.98s.

Joe Hinds:

  • 4th in the 800m 17B with a new PB of 1:53.22s – an extremely close race. For context Ryan Gregson, a local athlete, ran a 1:53 in the 800m when he was 17 and went on to compete at two Olympics in the 1500m.
  • 6th in the 1500m 17B with a new PB of 4:02.32.

Milton Stepanovski:

  • 1500m PB & 3000m PB and a 6th place finish in the U14s.

Congratulations boys, on your stellar performances!
